Abstract

The ability of some zwitterionic natural deep eutectic solvents (NADESs) based on N,N,N-trimethylglycine (TMG) and carboxylic acids (oxalic, glycolic and phenylacetic) to act as environmentally friendly solvents for CO2 capture has been investigated. The solubility of CO2 in the NADESs was measured gravimetrically at different temperatures in the range 298.15–333.15 K, and at different pressures in the range 0.1–4 MPa. The effect of the adopted experimental conditions has been discussed. The highest uptake has been observed for phenylacetic acid/TMG DES at 313.15 K and 4 MPa (45.5 mg CO2/g DES). The efficiency of this NADES as CO2 sorbent when reused in subsequent capture cycles has been evaluated. This work might open new perspectives in developing the most appropriate combination of HBA and HBD components of the DESs and the most appropriate operative conditions for an environmentally friendly CO2 capture.
